Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, and Nacho Fernandez may also depart when their contracts expire.
The latter, one of Real Madrid’s longest-tenured players, has drawn interest from Inter Milan and Villarreal.
Nacho may decide to depart this summer in order to play more frequently for the first team as he tries to maintain his spot in Luis de la Fuente’s Spain squad.
Relevo claims that Real Madrid has already chosen Nacho’s replacement in Carlo Ancelotti’s first team roster, and the player is already on the club’s payroll.
Rafa Marin, who has performed well for Castilla this year, would be given a promotion if Nacho leaves the Spanish giants.
Although he has yet to play for the first squad, Marin is highly respected at Real Madrid. The youngster might find himself playing a significant role next season, though, if Nacho does decide to leave this summer.
Alvaro Odriozola has been a Real Madrid contracted player for five years with loan spells at Bayern Munich and Fiorentina along the way.
The 27-year-old has never been able to break into the starting XI and has always found minutes hard to come by. With one year remaining on his contract, the player will once again be available for transfer.
Odriozola has long been vocal in his love for Real Madrid and his belief that he can make the grade at the club. Despite his faith in his own abilities, Odriozola has not managed convinced the likes of Lopetegui, Solari, Zidane and Ancelotti.
